Hamilton Souther: Plant Medicine Essentials

As more scientific research reveals the benefits of plant medicine, the number of people who would have never considered them is growing by the day.

Unfortunately, the curious are taking short cuts to test plant medicines for themselves, and don’t know if what they’re taking is safe (or even the real thing).

Explore plant medicine ceremonies with an open mind and heart and how to experience them safely with Hamilton Souther, chairman/founder of Blue Morpho a Peruvian-based company specializing in ayahuasca retreats, in this how-to Living 4D conversation.
